Comprehensive statewide fisheries management in Missouri
Surveys and inventories are conducted to gather fish population, angler use, and other information needed to effectively manage the state's streams and public lakes for quality fishing. Missouri DOC also conducts habitat improvement, including stream habitat improvement projects on public lands, and public lake habitat improvement projects, and provides technical guidance to private landowners to effectively manage their lands and waters for good water quality and habitat, healthy aquatic communities, and quality fishing, and other benefits. This grant has been used as an efficient model for other states to emulate, and is used in the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program's National Training Program.
